Today I am at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. This is the place where Jesus was buried and resurrected. All around me are ancient buildings and worn away sculptures. The Church of the Holy Sepulchre kinda looked like a cathedral from the religious architecture of christianity showing it looking like an old capital on the outside. It was very beautiful with all of its paintings and colored glass that shined very gracefully when the light hit it.

Today I am at Kubur Bani Yisra'il AKA The Tombs of the Children of Israel a sacred site of judaism. The mysterious, huge stone structure, rises from a rocky plateau about 3.5 miles northeast of Jerusalem, in the biblical land of Benjamin. No one knows for sure how these megaliths got the Arabic name that preserves a Hebrew tradition. Archaeologists tell us that they are tombs dating back to around 2000 BCE. Its religious architecture shows ancient times where the steps were bricks of cobble and holes in the wall for doors.
